    @tc - perfect! thx for that!

    Still, wish the UI would work properly. Very weird.
  • #1199
    This is a very good addon.
  • #1198
    Is there a way to get rid of that GIANT box that pops up when you hover (usually accidentally... in a BG...) over the minimap button? Just an option or something? I really don't want to hide the minimap button, I just don't need all (any) of that information that's in the box. I just use the minimap button to turn archy on or off... that's pretty much it.
  • #1197
    for some reason i cant see a archy at all and i press it says its active
  • #1195
    Suggestion: on the artifacts list, it currently displays as %name% %fragments% (+%keystones*12%) / %fragsNeeded%. I would like to see it as %name% %fragments+keystones*12% (%fragments% + %keystones*12%) / %needed%.

    Example (one key, 53 fragments): Clockwork Gnome 65 (53+12) / 100
  • #1194
    BUG: This addon will result huge conflict with Elvui. My FPS of the game drops from 60 to 2. As a result I have to disable it or suspend Elvui.
  • #1190
    Bug: I am unable to solve puzzles with rune stones while the add-on is active. I have to disable it, reload UI, solve, then reload add-on to continue using it.
  • #1193
    not sure of the intention, but check auto fillin key stones in the options. This lets you solve with keys. i guess on the solve page if you don't want to use it remove them(?)
  • #1196
    Thanks, that fixed the problem for me. Since I pretty much always want to use keystones, I don't have to worry about it now. It had been very frustrating having to reload ui so often just to finish an artifact.
  • #1191
    Got the same bug
  • #1192
    Same here
  • #1189
    I am trying to send the various messages to a chat window but can't find which channel/style to send where? Ideas?
  • #1186
    Would you be able to add this feature? I'm hoping that you could add a feature that when you enter a battleground/arena/instance it automatically hides the archaeology ui. That would be fantastic if you could add it :]
  • #1185
    I kinda miss the creepy voice-over when looting a keystone. Is that gone for good, or just moved to an option I'm not seeing?
  • #1187
    I have no idea what you're talking about - are you sure you didn't have another AddOn which did this?
